What can you say when you have just played the best game of the year? I can tell you about the insanely beautiful world of vikings, how the lore is accurate but with some twist (obviously since well….Kratos) and how the story just grows on you with it’s twist and turns, you just want to keep on playing until you figure it all out. It’s been a long time since I had this feeling with a game, a game that I can not stop playing and get the urge to calling in sick at work just to play a fantastic game. I played God of War for two weeks intensely, got the platinum for it and loved every single minute of doing so. I dreamed of it when I was asleep, thought about it when at work and when I played it I didn’t want it to end.
The journey of Kratos and Atreus is one you do not want to miss out on, the game alone is worth getting a Playstation 4 for. Two things I need to point out that I was afraid would take a hit for the worse on this game compared to the rest of the series and that’s the voice acting and ability to jump. Initially I did miss being able to jump but it doesn’t take long until you get familiar with how this new God of War gameplay is, which is in all honestly still very action packed with a lot of combos, just not as many tricks and depth to it as before but I still think they did a good job as I was very negative to that fact before I started playing the game. Then the voice acting, wow just wow. The new Kratos is way better than the old one, and I thought he was good too! Mimir, Atreus and all the others got a spot on casting too and it makes the whole game have a complete package, great voice acting adds oh so much to a game. Just listening to Mimir and Atreus storytelling when being on the boat brought me great joy for example, I can’t remember last time I could just enjoy looking around in a game taking in the environment and listening to characters talk.
So what are you waiting for? If you got a Playstation 4 there is no reason you shouldn’t be all over this game by now. If you don’t have a Playstation 4 I suggest you get one now and play this game!
- It’s so damn beautiful!
- The lore and story is superb.
- At times I do miss being able to jump.
- I would like more NPC’s.
Score: 5/5 Masterpiece
